    APP OF THE DAY: Angry Birds Star Wars review (iOS, Android, WP8, Kindle Fire, Windows 8, Mac, PC)

    By 8 November 2012

    We have to admit, we haven't been as excited about a Rovio game since we played the original Angry Birds all those many years ago (three, to be precise). The blend of rewarding casual gaming and Star Wars was always going to reinvigorate a franchise...

    Kinect: Star Wars review

    By 3 April 2012

    Star Wars is everywhere. The Lucas empire extends far beyond the reach of any traditional franchise, with our friends C3PO and R2D2 being as ubiquitous as the kitchen sink. Some of the ancillary elements to the Star Wars world are great - Knights of the...

    Go on, 'fess up. Just how many times did have you picked up a pole or stick and swiped it around making Lightsaber noises? Well now you don't have to. Toy Lightsabers, even replicas, are nothing new but the Ultimate FX Lightsaber from Hasbro caught our...

    Star Wars: The Complete Saga Blu-ray box set pictures and hands-on

    By 12 September 2011

    Yep, it's here! Literally. We have in our possession the Blu-ray box set of Star Wars: The Complete Saga, and we've been as giddy as a schoolchild on half a lager shandy. That's not to say it isn't flawed, of course - there's glaring omissions (the...

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II review

    By 29 October 2010

    Say what you will about Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, but it’s far from the worst Star Wars game ever made. Is it as wretched as the licensed game of Episode III? Not on your nelly. As rotten as The Clone Wars or Super Bombad Racing? How on Earth...
